9780195368536: True To Our Feelings

We live our lives through our emotions, writes Robert Solomon, and it is our emotions that give our lives meaning. What interests or fascinates us, who we love, what angers us, what moves us, what bores us--all of this defines us, gives us character, constitutes who we are. In True to Our Feelings, Solomon illuminates the rich life of the emotions--why we don't really understand them, what they really are, and how they make us human and give meaning to life. Solomon provides a guide to cutting-edge scientific research, as well as to what philosophers and psychologists have said on the subject, but he also emphasizes the personal and ethical character of our emotions. He shows that emotions are not something that happen to us, nor are they irrational in the literal sense--rather, they are judgments we make about the world, and they are strategies for living in it. Fear, anger, love, guilt, jealousy, compassion--they are all essential to our values, to living happily, healthily, and well.

About the Author:


The late Robert C. Solomon was Quincy Lee Centennial Professor of Business and Philosophy and Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Texas at Austin. A past president of the International Society for Research on Emotions, he was the author of more than forty books and did several video and audio "Superstar Teacher" courses for the Teaching Company.

Review:


"Not only does Solomon's philosophical perspective and writing style give the text depth and thoughtfulness, it alos provides psychology, especially clinical psychology, with a means of deepening and broadening its questions and analyses."--Janet Etzi, Journal of Phenomenological Psycholgoy


"Solomon is widely known for his work on the emotions and his ability to bring philosophy to a wider audience. In this volume he once again proves to be an interesting, accessible writer.... Recommended."--CHOICE


"For anyone unfamiliar with Solomon's work, it will make an excellent introduction, a fine expression of the passion which he identified with a certain ideal conception of happiness, wisdom, and the good life."-Ronnie de Sousa, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

What interests or fascinates us, who we love, what angers us, what moves us, what bores us-all of this defines us, gives us character, constitutes who we are. In True to Our Feelings , Solomon illuminates the rich life of the emotions-why we don t really understand them, what they really are, and how they make us human and give meaning to life. Emotions have recently become a highly fashionable area of research in the sciences, with brain imaging uncovering valuable clues as to how we experience our feelings.

Fear, anger, love, guilt, jealousy, compassion-they are all essential to our values, to living happily, healthily, and well. Solomon highlights some of the dramatic ways that emotions fit into our ethics and our sense of the good life, how we can make our emotional lives more coherent with our values and be more true to our feelings and cultivate emotional integrity.
